piece points out 43% of obama's appointees have been women. but following a slew of nominations of white men for high possessions, we've seen them all. today it looks like a lot of white guys getting good jobs. and hilda solis is resigning. going to talk to joan walsh. which is fun in this discussion. and eugene robinson who writes beautiful columns and you did it again on rg3. is there something wrong with this picture, joan walsh? as we look at it. >> yes. obviously there is, chris. it would be a somewhat different picture if valerie had been actually visible in it. so that's a shame. but it's not enough. she is one of the most influential if not the most influential person in the president's circle. we've got to give him credit for that. i think it's unfortunate the "times" piece did not talk about the fact he did nominate two women to the supreme court. and the court nominees have been good in terms of diversity. those two things mitigate a bit. however, you're right. that picture -- the general picture you showed before the segment of the top level appointees, john brennan we

, the obama administration's at a net loss when it comes to women and minorities in the cabinet. "outfront" tonight, roland martin, rosa brooks, and reihan salam. rosa, let me start with you. this is a president who campaigned aggressively on women's reproductive rights and equal pay for equal work. it was a big part of his campaign. he won the women's vote by double digits over mitt romney. should the president be asking for something that he mocked, i.e., binders of women? >> i'm tempted to send him a few binders. i know a lot of fantastic women. i think this isn't an issue of affirmative action here. this is an issue of having to reach far down in order to find a woman who is a little bit less qualified than man and putting her up there. this is a question of you got a bunch of equally qualified people, one of whom is a democratic woman in a lot of these cases, why are we not trying to put those women in these positions. >> roland, this is pretty interesting. jay carney, white house spokesman, said we want the best person for the job, and we value diversity. obviously so far,

and gays, except it really kind of does. the last two things that president obama signed into law at the new year were the fiscal cliff thing and the pentagon bill. and the pentagon funding bill includes a big new hard-fought provision over whether women who are in the military who are raped can have access to abortion. this is a live policy issue being debated and hanged as a matter of policy right now. in the defense bill that was just signed by president obama, female troops can now receive medical coverage for abortions that are the result of rape. that is a change in policy that is brand-new. previously, the only abortions that were covered for our military servicewomen were in cases where her life was in danger. not anymore. and this is a huge deal in the u.s. military, because it turns out this is a huge problem in the u.s. military. in 2011, a little more than 2,000 cases of sexual assault were reported by female service members. the actual number when you include cases that go unreported is estimated by the pentagon to be more like 19,000. 19,000 cases of rape and sexual ass
